India is a nation where almost all the major streams of human religious history have been and are presently active. Alpha Media.
Makes books from any and all of these streams available to interested readers, through a unique association with various publishers and book sellers in India. Our name, Alpha Media, suggests that as new ideas are confronted syntheses develop in the mind and communication across traditions and religions becomes dynamic and fruitful.
This site contains a select list of recommended books on Hinduism, Christianity in India (especially studies on the distinctive of contextual Indian Christianity), Indian culture and history, and other Indian religious traditions. Allow two to three weeks for delivery of your books since all orders are shipped direct from India.
Currently there are 4555 Authors represented in 4414 Titles. Broken down into four major divisions covering 352 Subjects Due to complexities related to sourcing of books in India the Alpha Media websites is no longer accepting orders.
Information about the many books we have offered for sale over the past years is still displayed here as a public service for people interested in Indological literature. It is hoped that a solution to the complexities of sourcing and selling books from dozens of publishers in India might be resolved in such a way that the company could open again at the standard of excellence maintained over the past years. But that is not a certainty at this time.
